Currently loving: Yellow Pom Flowers

Billy balls, that is. It took me forever to find out these name of these adorable little flowers, but I can’t remember the last time I was so obsessed over a certain type of flower since succulents (who am I kidding, I still am). Now onto some serious eye candy overload!

Patricia + Dennis’s Surrealist Session

This engagement session is off the hook! Inspired by this painting, the couple fearlessly trusted the talented photographer Caroline Ghetes‘s idea and incorporated coffee bean bags into the shoot, along with a vintage mask and other props I have never seen in an engagement session before. I truly believe that a photographer’s creative freedom is always for the best interest of the couple, and it never fails. I am in awe with the result!

From Caroline:
Originally, their idea was to do a “The Notebook” inspired shoot, in a more modern way and we accomplished that with about half the pictures. I’ve also always wanted to inject a few strange ideas into an engagement session with a willing couple and some of these ideas/concepts were inspired by one of my favorite artists: Rene Magritte. In so many ways, we are alike in that the type of photography that I love the most, are the ones that when the viewer looks at a photo, they are left confused. Non-sensical & whimsical poses with no idea or concept or story behind it.

Jenn + Brad’s Indie Wedding

You might remember Jenn’s couture bridals I featured here a few months ago. Well, she got married and it was nothing short of amazing. They had their ceremony and reception at Freedom Park, in Charlotte, North Carolina. Their parents stood up next to them during the ceremony, which I think is the sweetest, most thoughtful thing! Jen’s gorgeous bouquet was made by one of her friends with flowers purchased from The Fresh Market and Bethany from All The Right Grooves played “All These Things That I’ve Done” by The Killers for Brad’s walk down the aisle. Big thanks to Cheyenne Schultz for sharing these with us!

From the bride, Jenn:
“I was 21 years old and I thought I knew who I was. I met you, Jennifer, and I’ve been wrong ever since. It never ceases to amaze me what love can do. I’ve learned that love actually isn’t what makes the world go ’round, but rather, love is what moves us. It’s what drives us to be better people, it’s what allows us to forgive, it’s what wakes us up in the morning, and it’s what we got babe. Jennifer, I take you as my friend, I take you as my lover, I take you as my wife, and all these things I give to you with the simple promise of in a world where you are possible, nothing can go wrong for us.”

These were the vows Brad wrote for me and read that day. I didn’t have anything prepared as far as written down for our vows…I just spoke from the heart. I am a vegan and I spoke briefly about how he snagged me, despite his love for spaghettios from the can. For all those who know us, they understood what a big deal that is! : )

Jenn’s father and her walked down the aisle to the musical intro to the song “23″ by Jimmy Eat World. Brad and Jenn made our exit to “Over the Hills and Far Away” by Led Zeppelin.

I think Brad must have just started a groom’s style revolution. I also haven’t seen a guy look this cool in pleated pants up to this date.

The groomsmen were asked to wear a dark vest, charcoal pants, white shoes, white belt, and a crazy belt buckle. Brad gave them all their ties, which he drew on the bottoms of. We thought it would be easier to let our bridesmaids and groomsmen choose their own attire so they felt comfortable and didn’t match. We wanted them to look like their own person, not replica of everyone else. The bridesmaids were asked to get a dress that was a grey tone. some opted for short and some for long. (two of them are pregnant so the long was better for them…comfort wise) Other than that, I just asked that they wear black shoes. The dresses came from several different places. (J.Crew, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Davids Bridal)
Brad had his suit custom made. We picked out the fabric and delivered it to a friend of Brad’s who makes suits. She did an amazing job!! He had a hard time finding buttons that he liked though. All were very expensive. He was able to go to a salvation army and purchase an old jacket that he just cut the buttons off of. Genius! I think it only cost him $5!
My dress is a Cymbeline dress. I had it altered into a mermaid fit by having the torso extended and tucked and had part of the train cut off and sewn to make the dress a one shoulder. It turned out just how I had hoped! My hair piece was ordered from Etsy. It is by LoBoheme. This was a last minute purchase that was more than worth it!! It really made the look complete!

During the ceremony we had out dear friend Jay do a reading. He wrote a beautiful poem that moved us both to tears. Jay and his partner Jim also did all of my flowers and bouquet….they were amazing!!!
Brad is a musician and in the band S.O.STEREO. His manager, Bruce, got ordained online and performed the ceremony. This was perfect for us. We wanted to be sure that we had a ceremony with religious roots, but by someone who knew us from the begging of our relationship. It was a beautiful ceremony and we chose to have our parents stand beside us and our wedding party sit in the front rows.
